His 1973 rendition of the song is even more stunning. Taylor changed the songs almost every tour which shows not only his musicality but also his flexibility and creativity.

He took a couple of prisoners on the 1974 tour; but since it was so poorly attended, it has been largely ignored. Your point, however, is generally...well, on point.
so people didn't go to see them on the 1974 tour? I know there are people that say MT overplayed in 1974, I've never had a chance to analyze tour by tour but that's what I'm reading here. Taylor then quit in 1975, while he is certainly one of the greatest guitarists of rock I believe he did not have the physical constitution to be a giant rock star with unlimited everything all of the time. This could be why his playing faltered, he is after all human not superhuman when it comes to partying like Keith and Ronnie.

I like it better when you write more colorfully, as in your previous post. This one was a relatively colorless post.

I love Miles; especially his racist rants. This is why Bill Evans joined him on Kind of Blue, as the story goes.

Unnecessary thread to me. I like almost everything he played with the Stones.

Yes this is the thing. Almost everything he did with the Stones is among the best. What to pick... OK Ill give you the least greatest: If you can't rock me. Theres nothing wrong with Taylors solo, its not bad at all, but I know he could have done so much better had he felt like it. Come to think of it, it's not the solo, it's the sound on the guitar. Keiths sound live in 1975 and 1976 is so much better on that song, as his playing, and had Taylor done a solo live Im sure it would have been among his better.

That's funny! I have that same feeling about Dance Little Sister, but I love his IYCRM-solo smiling smiley

This solo is near perfection. Brings back good memories. Too bad he busts a string toward the ending.




ha! broke a string myself on Saturday 2 min from the end of the night. no need to change it ,no problem !

did they have a guitar tech in 72 ?
any more boots with a burst string audible ?

suppose it wouldn't matter if the solo wasn't great if you were there that night !!

I don't know if this is considered a solo but Plundered my soul is really good. U wish they could play it live with Taylor.

Some of Mick Taylor solos are absolutely fantastic. But I don't see much point in listening to Stones songs sung by Carla Olson instead of Mick Jagger, never mind the great solo.

It's purely lead guitar, no solo.

I'm relieved that someone understands that all solos are leads but not all leads are solos. I like some of MT's solos at the Leads University show, which confuses the matter even further....

over on the Carla Olson chat board they don't see the point of listening to Carla Olson Stones covers sung by Mick Jagger. We need to find some common ground.

Simple Twist of Fate from the 1984 Dylan tour was great for ex. Rome.
Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Hearbreaker) studio and live 1973
You Can't Always Get What You Want from Kansas 22th of June 1972 was goood.
Finally the best ever solo from Mick Taylor is Midnight Rambler Shanghai China 2014.

It should be more interesting to name the Taylor solos that were bad. Much more challenging.

His playing on DF on the Marquee show is ridiculous, but on the studio version and on L&G he plays good albeit safe country solos.

This judgement is ridiculous. Give it another try, a good one this time.

The noodling there has nothing to do with the song.
